As a preschool teacher, I often spent time in the woods with my kids. I've also taught at schools that back up to woods. My son's elementary school playground backs up to a wooded area. Ticks are common here. I've never had a issue. I think experiencing nature is such a valuable experience for children, it's worth the risk. You just have to be alert and check your kids.Licensing would frown upon tubes of chemicals accessible to children.
